Burning libraries (even private ones) cannot be justified in my mind, and it depresses me that people would push for it.

A previous post by Brewster about a 1-year experiment on something else here:

"You may ask-- why a test period of a year? well we are an archive and we think long term. Our culture makes us hesitant about taking things out of archives (images of burning come to mind), and restrictions that last forever. Forever is a long time."

Reminder: The logo in the upper left corner of any IA page is a reference to the Library of Alexandria.
